This is a great black blend. Bold. Fresh. It has a nice mouth feel to it. Reminds me of Lipton a little bit. It brews a dark brown cup. Would be great as a morning tea. One of my faves so far.

This tea is delicious and very affordable. It has a fresh but bold taste, which is hard to describe. Will be keeping this in my collection.

This tea is wonderful!! I normally get English Breakfast, and Orange Pekoe but I tried this one based on the reviews. It’s my favourite so far! Great smell, smooth, not bitter. I liked it a lot more than the dargeeling tea because it isn’t very strong. This is a great mix and makes a nice strong cup of tea.

This is one of my more affordable teas in my collection but I enjoy it immensely and I consume it regularly in my tea rotation. It is thoroughly smooth and non bitter and I easily get two or three infusions from the tea leaves.
After sipping this tea (which is the way all tea should be consumed), I can understand why the monks chose these teas to blend. A relaxing cup that encourages one to ponder the depths of the soul. An appropriate choice for "alone time" tea. A monastery beverage if there ever was one. The earthiness of this tea encourages one to get in touch with his or her Maker
The first taste was a surprising experience of delicate sweetness with none of that mouth puckering tannin. This gave way through the cup to a subtle earthiness that carried through to the end by which time it had developed a rich boldness with delicate fungi and raisin toast flavours. I mostly have this black with water after it has rested after boiling for about a minute.
